Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Open BSD router
I need to set up a router on a 486. I'm going to have two ethernet cards. One connected to the cable modem and the other connected to the hub. If i just enable routed will this work?, or am i missing something. (i'd like to know what i'm doing before i buy all the hardware.)
ps I read the man pages for routed and i wasn't a hundred percent sure.
You don't really need to worry about routed (it will take care of itself).
Just make sure you turn ip forwarding on and your netmasks are right... if you are using NAT or pf... then there are some small things to take care of. But it is really easy to do. The FAQ walks you right through the basics.
